elleroy was here


I'm a writer/musician/mom. I front an Indie/Americana band called Jehova Waitresses and I blog at elleroy was here. I'm a staff writer at Aiming Low, Funny Not Slutty and Sprocket Ink.

When you need a good laugh, where (besides your own blog) do you turn?

Definitely The Daily Show & Colbert Report, George Carlin, Margaret Cho and you know what? My husband really cracks me up. I sometimes steal his material. Sshh - don't tell.

What's your child's weirdest habit?

I do impressions and I like to break out into spontaneous song. Drives the family nuts. Also? Just about anything anyone says, I've got either a pop culture or song reference for it. Basically, I'm exhausting.

What's the most bizarre parenting product or children's toy you've seen or heard of?

We once bought a toy rubber knife called "The Party Weapon" at a party store. It's still in the package.
